Eclectic Hyde Park mansion from the 1890s reduced to $1.49M

5620 S. Blackstone Avenue, Chicago IL [Estately]

    Eclectic Hyde Park mansion from the 1890s reduced to $1.49M
    Supposedly built for a "wealthy Dutch tile merchant" in the late 19th century, this unusual Hyde Park mansion is an eclectic mix of historic architectural details and, naturally, a smattering of old-school handmade tiles. Decorated with a healthy dose of animal print, the six-bedroom property features leaded stained glass windows, beveled mirrors, and an original living room fire place.

Airplane noise?

what flew over hyde park five minutes ago?

  • I_want_to_know In search of solutions!

    Your message does not automatically get stamped with a time so please I think it would help if the time was added to your post. I have always lived close to trains and buildings that make loud noises so I can tune certain noises out.
    What did that noise you heard sound like? Helicopter, plane or that Osprey aircraft.

  • I have noticed a VERY loud plane flying close overhead this weekend and last. The noise is so awful, I thought it would crash. Never actually saw it tho.

  • SW

    I assume you are talking about what you heard at around noon. Yesterday it was helicopters flying over the Bears game in celebration of Veterans's Day before the game started. I saw the helicopters on TV. Nothing to worry about.
